VR EXPERIENCE - LEONARDO AND DRAWING

Weekends between May 4 and June 9

VR EXPERIENCE - LEONARDO AND DRAWING

Booking required: museoscienza.vivaticket.com
For Leonardo, drawing was a tool for studying reality and an extraordinary form of communication capable of expressing the connection between art and science. It is probably his greatest "invention". Today, with a simple but revolutionary program for "sculpted painting", we can try to copy a drawing by Leonardo and walk around it, combining art and technology as never before. What would Leonardo da Vinci have designed if he had virtual reality tools?

In partnership with Sony Interactive Entertainment Italy.

LEONARDO DA VINCI PARADE

July 7, 2018 – October 13, 2019

LEONARDO DA VINCI PARADE

The temporary exhibition “Leonardo Da Vinci Parade” - curated and developed by the Museum - comprises a large selection of fascinating models built in the 1950s through the interpretation of Leonardesque drawings and frescoes by sixteenth century Lombard artists, granted for storage in 1952 by the Pinacoteca di Brera, directed at the time by Fernanda Wittgens. The Museum celebrates its origins by evocatively exhibiting the two collections with which it opened to the public on February 15th, 1953. Next to the machines there are recently restored plaster and terracotta models of military and civil architectures - many of which have not been on display for years.
